As members and allies of the LGBTQ community, we recognize that committing to social justice and meaningful change requires more than sharing hashtags and statements of support. In that spirit, we share the aims ofBlack Voices Matter, a pledge of anti-racism in choral practice. We pledge specifically to the goals outlined in the sections addressed to conductors and to choral non-profit organizations, boards, and administrators. LGCSF will be pursuing these goals with the help of theGALA New Harmony Workbook and theOf/By/For All program.

Statement in solidarity with BlackLivesMatter
May 31, 2020
This week, we mourn and condemn the senseless and cruel murder of George Floyd at the hands of the police. Tragically, George Floyd was one of many victims of white supremacy and anti-black racism in the United States. The protests throughout our nation give voice to those who have cried for years that Black Lives Matter.
We stand in peaceful solidarity with the BlackLivesMatter movement. To all black people who are angry, who are hurting, who seek change: We will be your standing stone. We will stand by you.
The Artistic Director and Board of Directors, Lesbian/Gay Chorus of San Francisco
